Need to vent - hate this so much feel like I keep banging my head on a wall. Called ins co to see where my approvals for mri's are - Dr never sent in for them - oh they apologized but come on now been three weeks!  Also want to persue other avenues mimics for ms  lymes in particular - try and kill two birds so to speak while waiting for the great insurance co to say i can have my tests.  Well found some great docs but they do not take ins - come on now seriously - who has 1200 for dr appt and tests - I certainly do not - I work 7 days a week just to make ends meet - not easy when you have to be on your feet for two of those days and yeah walking and balance not the best here!  Okay being sarcastic but  am so done -  Why I keep doing this is beyond me - Sometimes I just want to call my bank and say here are the keys - they I look at my Jack's face - puppy - and I get my answer as to why I do this - All for him. He is the reason i get up every day and go to work and work 7 days a week - he cannot fend for himself he depends solely on me -  With no kids he is my kid. I feel do bad I can no longer take him for walks - still take him to run every sat and sun before work and even that is harder but i do it for him - will take my cane or crutches up there won't stop till I can't walk anymore,  THat is the hardest not being able to do what i used to,.  Heck can't even walk the mall anymore  not that I can shop but still miss it,  At the rate I am going figure i got bout a year till I am in a wheelchair - and at that pioint I will have to look for assisted living as I am single.  Okay feeling sorry for myself right now - guess we all have a right to once in a while - will shake it off - just needed to write stuff down and vent.    ANYWAY...

Just make sure that if they do an MRI on your cervical spine they use a 3tMRI.  When an MSer has trouble walking it usually indicates there are lesions on the spine.  If they use a 1.5t it is not high enough powered enough.  The spine is a very small space and it is hard to see lesions on a 1.5t.  Mine were missed.  

Just a heads up.....
